I'am completely unsatisfied with this disgusting school! Not only is the staff rude and neglectable but the school's staff is not even acceptable to work in a school. The school looks horrible and unimaginable. I don't even know how this school is an A school. The good reviews are all lies! God forbid you sent your'e beautiful and smart child here!

I heard this school is great. It has great ratings and someone once told me that if they had a child/children they would bring them to this school.

This school is a family school and a community school. It is special from the administration to the parents to the students. The teachers here are a team and have great love and respect for what they do. Any child would be lucky to be in such an academic, fun, and beautiful school!!!

Far away from being an "A" school. There is more to be an "A" school than only having students writing "A" grades. Of course, there are a few good teachers working at South Pointe Elementary but even these teachers overwhelm their students with huge quantities of homework every day not realizing that some students are bored all year long. Students who can't follow are left behind without support or additional help. Students who follow with ease don't get progress related worksheets. The absolutely worst experience I've ever made was the encounter with the school management and office administration, a group of disorganized and unfriendly people not able to deal with criticism constructively. Instead of a friendly welcome they make you feel like an intruder entering "their" territory. They prefer chewing gums, eating and talking to each other and don't mind you standing and waiting at the office desk. Is this an appropriate behavior you may expect from an "A" school? At the end of this unbelievable but true experience I feel sorry for those children who can't move to another school. We took our child out of South Pointe Elementary and are looking forward to a great new school year.

South Pointe is Not a great school.If having teachers be overwelhemled with to many students and stressing the child with ridiculous amounts of HW and also teaching children that it is accepted to tattle tale on one another exc. means its a great school well then I strongly suggest homeschooling instead. Worst school I've ever had my child in. The office woman are the rudest group of people who have no personality and are very unwelcoming , I recommend just going into the office and see their friendly apporches as they continue to "work" as you stand there.

My son goes to this school and while it is a great school, it is also OVERCROWDED because there are so many children attending that are not in the school district. The school needs to weed these children out. My sons class is a double class with 34 children and 2 teachers. The school capacity is just over 400 students and the enrollment is over 600 students.

It is with great pride that I as a parent write this review. My daughter is heading to middle school next year and I feel accomplished of having provided a safe and enriched school in many areas. South Pointe offers the students human and society values through the IB program, the Art and Music classes add to the individual education of each student, these teachers work hand in hand with the curriculum, and the academic preparation each student receives is very closely monitored by administration, making sure each student is reaching their maximum potential. Everyone in the school works together with only one goal in mind, the benefit and well-being of each and every student. The students at South Pointe are very happy children. I feel blessed to have had my child attend her elementary years at South Pointe, and even happier to see her enjoy her school, teachers and the process of learning so much!

South Pointe is an amazing Elementary school with very involved parents, progrssive teachers and a very helpful administration. The additional of the IB program has brought an extra touch to the curriculum, adding a sense of morality and international mindfulness. They have an organic edible garden that is a great teaching and learning tool for the students to learn about healthier choices.

The best school my sons went to in Miami Beach. Teachers are warm, caring and the Principal has a open door policy which is very rare. As parent, I witness how students worked in a peaceful environment which gave them a sense of pride and joy. South Pointe has been an A school for many, many years as a result of excellent administrators, teachers and supporting staff. If I had to make a choice again for my grandchildren, I would choose South Pointe without hesitation. It will be my number one choice.

The school is overcrowded because about 30%-40% of the students are in the gifted program and most of the students in the gifted classes do not live in the school boundary. The administration is aware that they do not live in the boundary area, but they are allowed to attend the school and overcrowd it. The admnistration only enforces the boundary rules for students who are not in the gifted classes. Many of the students live in the Morningside, Midtown and Bay Harbor area, yet they are allowed to attend the school, completely against the district rules. A better sense of "community" would be established if students who actually live in the "community" attended the school.

Go South Pointe !! I have three children at this school. I could not be happier. The classes are small and the teachers are wonderful. They really get to know your kids and all of their needs. Since the school is on the smaller size, it has a family atmosphere. The PTA and FOSPE are great. The office and administrators are approachable and easy to talk to. I really feel like I am heard and that my opinion really counts with everyone there. Most important though is that my children are learning and are really happy. What else can a parent ask for .

We LOVE SPE! There are a few large classes, but b'c of the parent's vigorous fundraising to benefit ALL students in the school, the lg. classes have 2 teachers. My child has never been in a class over 20 students. I do tons of volunteer work in the school and have been in most classrooms. I vouch that all of the teachers are wonderful, committed, engaged, smart and loving. They all seem committed to the school and make it feel like a tight, neighborhood community. The principle is dynamic, smart, fully committed in the school and employs the BEST teachers. We love it here and our child's academics are outstanding and challenging. HW, enrichment and PTA are A++

my kids and I love this school. The teachers are so dynamic and enthusiastic that the kids actually love learning. The school also has an incredible afterschool program. So I don't have to drive my children to gymnastics or basketball. We are so lucky to have such a school in our backyard. I find that it is more challenging acedemically than any private school. go south pointe!
